I just can't get enough of beauty for a good cause. What better way to justify a purchase than by helping those in need? Bare Escentuals has a great way to satisfy both your beauty desires and philanthropic motivations in the limited-edition Rebirth Eyecolor ($13). All proceeds from the sale of this product go directly to Direct Relief International, a group that helps families who are struggling to rebuild and recover from Hurricane Katrina.
The draw of this mineral shadow is that it's an unusual yet wearable shade of shimmery, denim blue. I just tried it out, and I'm happy to report that the color is deep and richly pigmented. It can be worn as a light sparkly wash on the lids, or applied with a damp brush for a smoky evening look.
If you're interested, snag one now; after April 27, they'll be gone for good. And keep an eye out for more snazzy limited edition beauty products from Bare Escentuals, as they've got six more planned for the year.
